Meet Speedy, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

What is the best thing about German Short-haired Pointers?

‘They are loving, funny and quirky.’

What is the worst thing about the breed?

‘Their sense of spatial awareness is none existent.’

What’s the best thing about being a breeder?

What is the worst thing about being a breeder?

‘Losing a puppy is the worst thing for a breeder to go through. It’s just heart breaking.’

How many litters do you tend to have per year?

‘Usually just the two litters.’

Why did you name him Speedy?

‘He’s called Speedy because I have never seen a puppy be born so quick and find the milky bar hence ‘Speedy’’.’
